Surfers and Construction Workers Try to Save Massive Baby Whale That Washed Ashore on Beach

Heartbreaking Moment as Surfers and Construction Workers Try to Save Massive Baby Whale That Washed Ashore on NY Beach.


The accompanying footage, captured by Timothy Moriarty, shows several surfers attempting to shove the 35-foot whale into deeper water against the tidal surge.

According to the Rockaway Times, the whale was spotted trapped on a jetty by Army Corps contractors from Michels at 7:30 a.m.

The contractors, who were on an unrelated job, helped surfers free the whale from the jetty. But the mammal did not swim off and later died.


Contractors used heavy equipment to haul the whale ashore as biologists reportedly were en route to perform a necropsy that could determine the cause of death.

The Rockaway Times uploaded several images of the incident to Facebook.

The stranding occurred in the Queens neighborhood of Arverne.
